We passed this waterfall during our fjord tour. This was a very active, not misty waterfall. Both are beautiful in there own way and being located directly opposite in the fjord. We took many pictures of all the falls on the 90 minute tour.

Totally magnificent Waterfall. The cruise book takes you close up to this simply stunning Waterfall. Common name for it is the Bridal Veil Falls. If you look close from the opposite side of the Fjord you can spot a heart shape in the Rocks.
